Our Ocean Safety Lifeguards
The beaches of Cronulla are situated on the Bate Bay coastline in the south eastern corner of Sydney. The area covers approximately five kilometres of sandy beaches as well as two kilometres of rocky coastline and five tidal pools situated at Kurnell, Cronulla Beach, Shelley Beach, Oak Park and Gunnamatta Baths. These beaches service more than 6,000,000 beach users per year.
Our Ocean Safety lifeguards wear blue and white uniforms and work 365 days a year. They are highly trained in rescue and resuscitation techniques and patrol North Cronulla, Elouera and Wanda beaches daily from October to April, whilst Cronulla beach is patrolled all year round.
Council Ocean Safety lifeguards also provide school education activities at North Cronulla from May to September and have two beach wheelchairs and a Mobi Mat available to the community to use.
